someone takes a picture of you looking at the picture you've just taken on the DSLR? Weird question I know but there's a specific term for it and I can't think!

Thanks

Well, it's you doing the chimping -- the person taking the picture of you is just outright stalking:)!

Real "chimping" is when a photog checks the LCD every time they take the first few pics of a set in order to get their exposure right for the scene.

Chimping like this is a bad habit that prevents people from taking advantage of the excellent exposure metering systems on a modern digital camera... if you don't use the metering system the way its supposed to be used then you more then likely chimp your exposure :)

If you use the metering system correctly there really is no need to check your LCD ever.

It's so much fun, it makes me miss shots. :(

Well, for some scenarios, sure, I could agree, but for others, nah -- the histograms and the highlight alerts can serve a very valuable function. Use the tools when appropriate.

It's always good to phrase a broad statement like that with something like "For the type of photography I typically do", bearing in mind that for other types of photography, well, not so much!
